The College of Architecture is excited to announce border ethics and urban equity advocate team Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman, principals of Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman, will be giving the first Hyde lecture of the spring semester titled “Unwalling Citizenship” at 4 p.m., February 12 via Zoom. https://unl.zoom.us/j/96889170927
For their lecture, the pair will explore the earth’s increasingly walled world and the possible reasonings behind the surge of anti-immigrant sentiment everywhere. Can the idea of citizenship be recuperated for more emancipatory and inclusive political and social agendas? Cruz and Forman will discuss their work on “citizenship culture” at the US-Mexico border and delve into the possible roles art and architecture can play to advance these agendas.
Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman, a research-based political and architectural practice in San Diego, investigates issues of informal urbanization, civic infrastructure and public culture, with a special emphasis on Latin American cities. Blurring conventional boundaries between theory and practice, and merging the fields of architecture and urbanism, political theory and urban policy, visual arts and public culture, Cruz and Forman lead a variety of urban research agendas and civic / public interventions in the San Diego-Tijuana border region and beyond.
The Lunch and Learn that was planned prior to this event has been canceled.
